After a fight that lasted eight rounds, Jake Paul had his first boxing-career loss to Tommy Fury, half-brother of heavyweight champion Tyson Fury. But Paul wasn’t the only celebrity who had a loss last night.

Ahead of the highly anticipated fight in Saudi Arabia on Sunday, the betting platform Stake took to Instagram to share that their brand partner, Drake, has bet $400,000 that Paul would knockout Fury. Had Paul won the fight, the rap star would have pocketed a whopping $1.4 million.

After his victory over the YouTuber-turned-boxer, Fury is now on a winning streak of 9-0. But the duo is likely to fight again, as per Paul’s rematch clause in the event that Fury won.

“If he wants a rematch, bring it on,” Fury said accepting the social media star’s demands.

When asked about Drake’s gambling loss, Paul responded that “$400,000 is nothing to him, he’s won a lot more betting on me before so he’s probably about even now.”

Apologizing to the Grammy-winning rapper, Paul claimed that he will “get that W in the rematch.”

Drake’s high-profile gambling losses have fulled the viral belief that any athlete that comes into contact with the rapper will lose their following match – a phenomenon dubbed the Drake Curse. According to CBS Sports, Drake lost nearly $2.3 million on UFC fighters Israel Adesanya and Jorge Masvidal, last year alone.
